Texas Sunday dining "institutions"? Any rec's?

bishopsbitter | Oct 20, 2007 01:52 PM

I often find myself looking for destinations on Sunday (my day off!) to give an excuse to make trips to smaller-town/city eats but find Sunday eats hard to locate.

Many BBQs are closed. Plenty of hideous chains open for biz: yuk.

About the best I've found is the famous Clarks Outpost in Tioga but that's almost a Dallas suburb at this stage. For more rural parts of TX (eastern half really is my stomping ground: I am a private pilot so can hit most places east of the Pecos on a day flight from Houston) wondering about places where people have been going for years, either after church, or after fishing or whatever Sunday endeavors they favor.

Particularly for Sunday breakfast/lunch/brunch.

Looking for something a bit special, however any cuisine or variety is fine.

I know they are out there but these sort of places are hard to find. Another good one is Pete Harris Cafe in Shreveport (yes this could spill over into W LA too) but smaller towns are more to my taste.

Thanks for any hints. A bit of an offbeat request I know, but any help is always appreciated, so long as it's open Sunday :-)
